I am searching for a nursery that carries Kathryn Morley roses. The variety is originally David Austin, but they no longer have it. I am in IL, but any location that ships here would do. Thanks.

Just selected and paid for "Fearless" having read a rave review elsewhere online about heat tolerance. How dismayed was I to find a note on it's listing here to say, does NOT do well in warmer climates. Opinions?

So you have the opportunity to test the warm weather suitability of 'Fearless' and report back to the HMF community. Just be certain to post your review under 'Fearless' not Hardy Roses.

Yes, I guess I am about to find out. We have extreme long periods of dry heat (country QLD).

We will certainly find out if it lives up to it's name. I have a very hot dry climate and high winds. I do what I can for them, but if they are delicate they dont survive.

The person who said “it tends to burn a lot in heat” lives in Sydney. In the references Swane’s Nursery (also Sydney) says “ Leathery foliage that withstands fiery summer temps”. Let us know in time, and as Palustris says, under ‘Fearless’.

Good idea. While I have some roses doing amazingly well in full sun, the others with afternoon protection are probably grateful, so I will do that. Since I'm building alot of little polypipe shadecloth screens for young fruit trees, I can do the same for some roses. Will let everyone know in time. Thanks

My name is Jean Baker, and I am President of Lakeshore Garden Masters. We are the caretakers of a small garden in Muskegon, Michigan. Our garden, the Monet Garden of Muskegon, is a miniature version of the real Monet in France. We have many flowers and shrubs, which are the same varieties that are in the real Monet. We have a pond with a blue bridge and a path with metal archways. Our garden recently received the Keep Michigan Beautiful award for 2018 and was listed as a Marvel of Muskegon by our local paper. I am writing you because this garden is almost 19 years old and we are renovating the structures and some of the plantings. Some of our climbing roses need to be replaced due to disease and lack of vigor. It may be that we did not do the proper pruning and the older varieties we planted were susceptible to disease. We would like to get 4 new climbing roses - 2 in pink and 2 in red - and we were wondering if you could give us some advice about ones to plant. The area gets sun most of the day and is watered. The soil is rich and the other perennials in the garden are growing well. We would like varieties that flower more than once a season. Any advice you could give us would be highly appreciated.

Jean, i am sorry you have not had any replies. Perhaps you might like to give us your local conditions, snow? min and max temperatures? rainfall? etc. I in Australia, have no idea about your conditions, but my (zone 9?) very best repeat-flowering climber would be ‘Marie Nabonnand’. ‘Dublin Bay’ is highly rated in Australia and New Zealand. ‘Renae’ is another that springs to mind.

Unfortunately 'Renae' is not hardy. Ralph Moore lamented this is the reason it was not given nationwide distribution. 'Cimbing Pinkie' was chosen at the time instead.

Are you in zone 5 or 6? You might want to look at the some of the recent climbers from Kordes. 'Florintina' and 'Amadeus' for red, and perhaps 'Jasmina' and 'Laguna' for pink. Those are very popular varieties and I think they are supposed to be hardy to zone 5. Two nurseries whose personnel could advise you are Palatine in Canada, which does ship to the USA, and Northland Rosarium in Spokane.

Whoever designed the garden may have been trying to maintain the palette established at Giverny? If this is true you may need to seek those historical roses and have them propagated again for your uses.

If you are just trying to replace what is there in order to make it easier to maintain, you may want to contact local rose experts or a local rose society to decide which varieties best suit your conditions.

A pink Climber which comes to mind for me is 'New Dawn'. It might be hardy in your conditions. Of course there are many pink ramblers such as 'American Pillar' which are hardier and would suit your needs if you do not require repeat.

Some one Please help me to show Sharifa Asma rose plant, where it will be available, so I can buy for Cypress Texas 77433.

Go into SEARCH / LOOKUP in the left hand column.
Type in the rose name.
In the rose’s page, click on BUY FROM (top right) and you will find many nurseries who sell this rose. Make sure you click on “View all nurseries selling this rose” at the bottom of the page.
